Dudʹman and Ramhead

.

When Dudman and Ramhead meet. Never. Dudman and Ramhead (now spelt Ramehead) are two forelands on the Cornïsh coast, about twenty miles asunder. (See Never.)

Make yourself scarce! depart! vanish! or weʹll have you summoned before the mayor of Halʹgaver, and that before Dudman and Ramhead meet.”—Scott: Kenilworth, iv.
